The Decorating Ghosts of Christmas Past


One of the wonderful things about having a blog is that you can look at old
seasonal photos from years gone by and remember what you liked about a 
holiday decorating scheme.  



These are a few of my favorites from last year.  This was my Sun Valley
Christmas cloche.  It was fun putting it together for one of Marty's
cloche parties.




This is another one of my favorites.  Love that Christmas card that looks
like a vintage postage stamp!



And this darling little bird is another favorite.  
Now that I have the Christmas boxes down from the attic, I wonder what
I will create this year?  

For more inspiration I am headed over to 

and

Okay Bentley ~ let's gather up all of your Christmas themed
squeak toys and put them in a wagon for your display!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  13. I love how you change and recreate your things. You have such a great skill at creating displays that look just right!

    It's funny, some of my things go back to the same exact spot, year after year. Other things land somewhere new each Christmas. None of mine look nearly as good as yours! I just can't do anything Christmas until December, but I'm thinking!

  18. Hi Susan and Bentley,

    I love these three vignettes!! They are so charming; it's hard to decide which one I like best. ;) I do love the Santa nesting dolls and the unique Christmas card. I love this season, and it's so nice to see how everyone else decorates their homes.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Hope you have a great week!
